Background/Objectives: This research tries to investigate how emotional, instrumental and social support for the marine sports athletes affects their growth potential. It also aims to provide empirical data for the reasonable management of the athletes in the sports field. Methods/Statistical Analysis: This research was conducted to investigate the effects of support of marine sports athletes on their growth potential. The targets of this research were 244 marine sports athletes in 2015 and a survey was conducted on them. For the data processing, exploratory factor analysis, reliability test, frequency analysis, correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis were conducted and the results are as follows. Findings: First, of the correlation between the support for marine sports athletes and growth potential, emotional support had a positive correlation with growth flexibility and instrumental and social support had positive correlations with possibility and growth flexibility. Second, also regarding the effect of support for on marine sports athletes, social support had a positive effect. Third, of the effect of support for the marine sports athletes on growth flexibility, instrumental support had a positive effect. On the growth potential of the marine sports athletes, instrumental support and social support showed positive effects. Application/Improvement: From these results, we can say that support for the marine sports athletes has a positive effect on the growth potential. That is, we need to strengthen the instrumental and social support for the growth potential of marine sports athletes. For further research, considering the support for marine sports athletes as the result variable, more diverse variables can be added to make a big improvement in research on marine sports athletes.
